Convert any photos into bead patterns

It’s super easy – all you have to do is select a photo from your photo archive to “pearlify” it into a printable bead-by-number pattern.

The software allows you to create bead patterns to your desired size and improve the results by adding filters, adjusting colors, brightness, and contrast.

The bead patterns work with PhotoPearls 75 bead colors and PhotoPearls interlocking pegboards (15×15 cm).

You can use PhotoPearls software on computers with Windows® and macOS®.
